    Notes: The linear viscoelastic behavior of commercial broad-distribution polypropylenes is studied. The samples underwent different controlled peroxide degradation rates, so they exhibit different molecular distributions. The relaxation spectrum is obtained by assuming that it takes the shape of a Log-Normal distribution. It is in agreement with the linear viscoelasticity theory by providing limiting values, contrary to other models. Moreover, the ratio τw/τn which takes place in this law is very useful to distinguish the synthesis differences of the samples when the Melt Flow Index alone cannot.

    Notes: Using an integral nonlinear constitutive equation including the Log-Normal relaxation spectrum, the fiber-spinning behavior of commercial polypropylenes is studied. The relaxation spectrum is strongly related to the molecular weight distribution. Moreover, by means of a finite element analysis, simulated stress and velocity profiles are obtained either in isothermal or nonisothermal cases. In the isothermal case, broadening the relaxation spectrum leads to more pronounced curvature of the velocity profile. In the nonisothermal case, the critical draw ratio is sensitive to the mean relaxation time which depends on both average molecular weight and distribution breadth. It is shown that increasing the average relaxation time leads to a less rapid growth of the velocity. Furthermore, this effect is less pronounced when the relaxation spectrum is wider.

    Notes: Abstract We have previously shown that the somatostatin (SRIF) sst2 receptor-selective peptide, BIM-23027, is a potent antisecretory agent in rat isolated distal colonic mucosa (RDCM) and in radioligand binding studies in RDCM membranes, it only maximally inhibited approximately 40% of [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding (McKeen ES, Feniuk W, Humphrey PPA (1995) Naunyn-Schmiedeberg's Arch Pharmacol 352:402–411). The aim of this study was to characterise the BIM-23027-sensitive and -insensitive SRIF binding sites in more detail and to compare their properties with those of the recombinant sst2 receptor stably expressed in mouse fibroblast (Ltk−) cells. SRIF-14, SRIF-28, CGP-23996 and D Trp8-SRIF-14 abolished [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding (pIC50 values, 8.7–9.7) but the competition curves had Hill slopes which were less than unity. Octreotide and L-362,855 inhibited binding over a wide concentration range (0.1 nM-1 μM) and inhibition of binding was incomplete at the highest concentration studied. BIM-23056 (PIC50 〈6.5) was a weak inhibitor of [125]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding. GTPγS decreased [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding by 40%. Further binding experiments with [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 were carried out in RDCM in the continuous presence of BIM-23027 (1 μM). Under these conditions, seglitide had no effect on [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding at concentrations up to 10 μM, whilst SRIF-14 and SRIF-28 abolished specific [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding in a manner which was consistent with the ligand binding to two sites. SRIF-14 and SRIF-28 displayed high affinity (pIC50 values of 9.8 and 9.3 respectively) for approximately 70% of these binding sites and low affinity (pIC50 values of 7.8 and 7.3) for the remaining sites. Octreotide, L-362,855 and BIM-23056 were weak inhibitors of [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 binding (PIC50 〈6.5). [125I]-BIM-23027 labelled a single population of SRIF binding sites in RDCM membranes and mouse fibroblast (Ltk−) cells stably expressing the human recombinant sst2 receptor. There was a significant correlation between the affinitestimates of a range of SRIF analogues at inhibiting [125I]-BIM-23027 binding in RDCM membranes and binding to the recombinant sst2 receptor in Ltk− cells, suggesting that the sites labelled by [125I]-BIM-23027 in RDCM are similar to the sst2 receptor. GTPγS (100 μM) decreased [125I]-BIM-23027 binding in RDCM by 60%. The results from these studies demonstrate that [125I]-Tyr11-SRIF-14 labels a heterogeneous population of high affinity SRIF binding sites in RDCM membranes. The majority of these sites are insensitive to GTPγS and display negligible affinity for the cyclic hexapeptides, BIM-23027 and seglitide. The remaining high affinity binding sites can be selectively labelled with [125I]-BIM-23027, are sensitive to GTPγS and show similar characteristics to the recombinant sst2 receptor which appears to mediate the antisecretory effects of SRIF in the mucosa (McKeen ES, Feniuk W, Humphrey PPA (1995) Naunyn-Schmiedeberg's Arch Pharmacol 352:402–411).

    Notes: Thermorheological properties of an incompatible polymer blend of polypropylene inclusions dispersed in a ethylene copolymer matrix were discussed from the emulsion model developed by Palierne. Due to the different rheological behaviors with temperature of the two phases, such a system proved to be a judicious blend in order to consider the special cases of the model applications: (1) the two phases are viscoelastic liquids, (2) the dispersed phase is a solid elastic assimilated to rigid spheres in comparison with viscoelastic liquid behavior of the matrix, and (3) the two phases are elastic solids. At low frequencies, the rheological behavior of the blend was not correctly predicted by the model. So interactions other than hydrodynamics can exist in the intrafacial region, and physical entanglements between the chains of the two constituents leading to topological interactions may be assumed at the interphase. © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

    Notes: A poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC)/poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) (80/20 w/w) polymer blend was studied by mechanical spectroscopy. Two relaxations can be distinguished: in the glassy state, a very large secondary relaxation in the range of 100 K to 325 K which results from the combination of secondary relaxations of PVC and PMMA; and only one main relaxation at 364 K associated to the glass rubber transition. The relaxation spectrum in the range of the β relaxation has been described by a relaxation time distribution function based upon a Gaussian function and a series-parallel model. The α relaxation was studied by means of a theoretical approach for the nonelastic deformation of polymers. We found that the miscibility of this blend appears to be a function of the observation scale: the PVC/PMMA blend is heterogeneous at the scale of molecular movements involved for the β relaxation process but homogeneous at the scale of the chain segments responsible for the α relaxation dynamics. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
